Noorani Responds to Biden’s Immigration Remarks

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In his State of the Union remarks this evening, President Biden highlighted the need for better border policy and solutions for Dreamers and immigrant farmworkers.

In polling released this week, Americans across the political spectrum, including 76% of Republican registered voters, said they support reforms “that strengthen border security, create a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children, and ensure a legal, reliable workforce for America’s farmers and ranchers.” Support was 81% among white evangelical Protestants.

“President Biden was clear that Congress needs to work toward immigration reform this year, and the American people agree,” said Ali Noorani, President and CEO of the National Immigration Forum. “Republicans and Democrats should work together to advance reforms that establish secure, orderly, humane processes at our borders and protect Dreamers, farmworkers and temporary protected status recipients.”
